Custom-made dry transfers for Milwaukee Tool’s product prototypes.

In the fast-paced world of marketing, timing is everything. When a new product isn’t due to be manufactured for months, industrial designers come to us to make dry transfers to finish their product and get it ready for the photographer.

When developing new products, it is always beneficial to be ready for the launch. In order to do that, new products might not be available for photoshoots or other marketing material.

Our transfers can be used to help create realistic looking products. These prototypes can be used for test markets, photoshoots, product development, and social media announcements. Our transfers can help you market your new product before it even hits the shelves.

We have been working with Milwaukee Tool for years, helping them with meeting their marketing and photography requirements. Like many things manufactured today, photographs are often needed of a new product before it goes into production. Professional looking prototypes can fill that need.

On several occasions, we have provided custom dry transfers to Milwaukee Tool for them to add their logo as the finishing touch to their product prototypes.

Steve from Milwaukee Tool wrote us a review:

“At Milwaukee Tool, we create realistic painted models to represent the final product for product photography. This allows us to have all the images for packaging and website to be ready before the launch of the product. Here’s a sneak peek at a couple of hand tools that use Image Transfer INT’s. Would you ever guess these are prototypes? The logo is the icing on the cake! Thanks for the great logos!”

Ideal for product photos, Milwaukee Tool provided us with vector artwork of their logo. They ganged it up to take advantage of the size areas we offer for custom dry transfers. We provided white rubdown transfers (INT’s) that not only look great but are useful for several different applications.

Image Transfers are custom dry rub-on transfer specialists. We make only one thing: custom rub down transfers for graphic designers, artists, and model-makers. A dry transfer (or rubdown) is an image printed on a translucent sheet. The image has a coating of adhesive on its back. The image is transferred from the translucent sheet onto another surface by applying light pressure in a rubbing motion. The dry transfer can be applied to any surface that is free of dust, grease or oil. Dry transfers are referred to as DRY because they are applied dry, without the use of water or solvents. A dry transfer is not a slip-off label or a water decal, instead, the transferred image appears as if it was printed directly onto the item. Our dry transfers are opaque because we back the colors with white, so our rubdowns can be applied to a surface of any color without changing the color of the rub-on transfer. We consider dry transfers a semi-permanent application. A top coat of clear lacquer can make them more permanent. Our production artists can match all Pantone Matching System (PMS) colors including Metallic. Standard transfers are semi-gloss but we also offer matte and uncoated finishes. We deliver within as little as 24 hours. -- Specialties: Custom Rub Down Dry Transfers, Art Gallery Signage & Museum Labels, Custom Transfers for Product Prototypes, Comps & Mock-ups, Dry Transfers for Scale Models.
